RATS & RAT REMOVAL
The most notorious pest species in the UK are ‘Common Rats’. They are carriers of diseases such as Salmonella, Weil’s Disease and Toxoplasmosis – hence the need for rat control.
Rats came to reside in the UK through the shipping traffic from around the world in the 18th century and became one of the most detested pests because of problems they cause. Their constant gnawing can cause numerous problems from fires to structural damage and they also taint foodstuffs.
A rat infestation in the home is an extremely serious problem and will need a qualified technician to remedy.
Rats in the garden/surrounding areas are also a serious issue and will need the relevant steps taken to ensure they don’t enter the home or building.
SIGNS OF RAT INFESTATION
Obvious signs of a rat infestation are as follows:
3-5mm rod shaped droppings
Holes in walls & floors
Footprints followed by tail dragging marks
Smears on walls left by dirty fur after contact
